If you are thinking about knee replacement, it is imperative you read this information.
It has been seen during surgeries that approximately 30% of the total knee replacements that are operated world wide, have only 1/3 of the knee damaged. But since there knee option available to most of the surgeons, therefore total knee replacement is the only answer. It is now considered to be unethical and unwise to operate and remove the cartilage and bone which is not damaged and would otherwise work good for 15-20 years more.

SO THINK AGAIN BEFORE GOING IN FOR KNEE OPERATION. IS THE CENTRE OFFERING THIS OPTION ?
That's why the concept of partial knee replacement gained popularity. In UK and USA, this surgery is going on well for more than 20 years, with results more than 98% success [better than a total knee replacement]. Only, a very few surgeons are trained for this procedure all over the world, as this is a very delicate and advanced surgery History takes it that this surgery has been introduced, in India by the keen academic endeavours of Dr. Harprit Singh, at ORTHONOVA HOSPITAL, JALANDHAR.

THE ONLY OXFORD CERTIFIED SURGEON IN INDIA. Presently, this is the only centre in INDIA offering this most advanced surgical option for the knee.

Dr. Singh's Views
When Surgery is the last resort. Any patient with knee pain, and with drugs and physio not working, can be a candidate for this highly advanced operation. It is the surgeons choice and decision, depending upon the extent of cartilage damage, whether this procedure can be done or whole of the joint is to be changed. Sometimes the decision may be reversed during the surgery itself.

How to decide who is eligible for this procedure?
Decision of the surgeon to perform total and half knee surgery depends on the condition of the joint damage, experience & training of the surgeon and the implants available to the surgeon.

Partial knee replacement

Treatment option available only in very few centres in the world and only one centre in India.

SCENARIO: If a patient walks into a routine joint replacement centre, with all conservative treatment options (like drugs, physio, exercises, massage etc) exhausted and has excruciating pain in the knee - he /she would most likely undergo a Total knee Replacement.

Routine joint surgery

SCENARIO : But if he/she consults a joint replacement surgeon who is specialist in both -Total knee replacement & unicondylar knee surgery and if he is a certified surgeon from OXFORD, UK - he may only resurface the part that is damaged and leave the undamaged original cartilage untouched.

BECAUSE ORIGINAL can never be DUPLICATED

THE CONCEPT :
If only one tyre of your car is damaged, would you change all the tyres? Unicondylar works on the same principle : only the damaged portion is changed.
